“The smallest meaningful unit for inclusion is the school” (Melody Musgrave)

SET-BC is inviting BC K-12 school teams to apply to join a multi-year initiative designed to support a whole school’s vision of becoming a model of inclusive practices.  This exciting initiative will provide project schools with the consultation, training, collaboration, and technology support that the staff determines will be most helpful in enabling them to be as inclusive as possible of all learners.  The specific supports for each project school will be unique and dependent on staff planning during the initial phases of the project.

Each BC school district may submit ONE application for a school to participate in the initiative and this application is coordinated through the SET-BC District Partner and District Leadership Team.

Here is some general information on the Inclusive Schools Initiative.  For more information on how your school might be supported in applying for this project, please contact your SET-BC District Partner.

Synergy Projects

SET-BC Synergy Projects are provincially coordinated technology projects designed for educators across British Columbia who are interested in exploring and sharing the potential for innovative technology to support student access to the BC Curriculum.

Projects may have a district, classroom or students focus. The number and type of Synergy projects available each year vary depending on Ministry of Education initiatives, SET-BC staffing, and annual program funding. To see what classroom-based Synergy projects were supported in previous years, please visit our Classroom Technology Projects area.

SET-BC is excited to offer Synergy projects for the year 2019-2020. Applications will be available in the early Fall.

SETdirect

SETdirect is a SET-BC provincial initiative designed to provide BC school district teams with access to simple technology kits that support and encourage social inclusion for students with complex needs.

District teams are able to request an allocated number of social inclusion kits that will meet their students’ needs and educational program goals. SETdirect requests are coordinated through our SET-BC District Partners between October 1st and January 31st each year.
